The Definitive Nas Song List (Part 2) #50-26

#50. Stillmatic (The Intro) – “I crawled up out of that grave, wiping the dirt, cleaning my shirt. They thought I’ll make another “Illmatic”, But it’s always forward I’m moving. Never backwards stupid here’s another classic.”…

#49. The Cross – “Y’all can keep y’all weak beats, from your corny producers. There’s a new king of the streets, you’re gonna get used to. I was the old king of the streets, that y’all once hated, But now I reinvented myself, and y’all all waited. NAS, N.A.S. mean Niggaz Against Society. Noisy I aim not silently, noose all surroundin me. I hang ’em I string ’em up ain’t no thing I just drop ’em.”…

#48. A Queen’s Story – “Niggas is very hungry for that bank robbery. Bury money, trying to get to a Benz from a Hyundai. The Queens Courthouse right next to the cemetery. Niggas’ rap sheets look like obituaries.”…

#47. You’re Da Man – “I hold cannons that shoot balls of flames. Right in they fat mouth then I carve my name. Nas – too real, Nas – true king. It’s however you feel, g’head, you swing. Your arms too short to box with god. I don’t kill soloists only kill squads.”…

#46. Queen’s Get the Money – “Take 27 emcee’s put them in a line and they’re out of alignment. My assignment since he said retirement, hiding behind 8 Mile and The Chronic. Gets rich but dies rhyming. This is hot science. Now add 23 more from Queens to B-more. I’ve over their heads, Like a bulimic on a seesaw.”…

#45. Drunk by Myself – “Heard niggas hate me, but I hated too once. Been in the shoes of a Wolf in the night when he hunts. For every shell niggas bust, we bust at ourselves. Can’t tell them niggas nothing though, bullets wak’em up well.”…


#44. Patience ft. Damian Marley – “Tryin’ to get paper, gotta have land, gotta have acres. So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson, watch niggas play the game like the Lakers. In a world full of fifty-two fakers, Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers. You superstitious, throw salt over your shoulders, make a wish for the day ’cause. Like somebody got a doll of me, stickin’ needles in my arteries, but I can’t feel it.”…

#43. Carry On Tradition – “Now some of these new rappers got their caps flipped backwards. Wit their fingers intertwined in some gang-sign madness. I got an exam, let’s see if y’all pass it. Let’s see who can quote a Daddy Kane line the fastest.”…

#42. The Firm – Executive Decision – “We smoke spliffs when the dro’s lit hoes get hit. Have them blow dick, blow the whole clique. Jeeps, Tahoe, shoes be Salvatore Ferragamo. Catch a homo, guns long like Mutombo, From Atlanta Hawk, rap fans I’mma stalk y’all.”…

#41. U Gotta Love It – “Some girls get too emotional, fanatic extremist. Get pulsive with malice insentitives, the foulest of bitches. Hung up my riches, her childest wishes. Be suspicious of those sleeping with fishes, them hoes. Conspicuous and it shows, tricking this dough. Kicking this flow, slip in a new fo’. So when your click roll, I let my clips go, Niggas on opposite polls.”…

#40. Bye Baby – “Listen, could you imagine writing your deposition? Divorce lawyer telling you how this thing gonna be ending? “With you paying out the ass, and I’m talking half. Not some but half. No serious, half” Half of your soul, half of your heart you leaving behind. It’s either that or die, I wanted peace of mind.”…

#39. Last Real Nigga Alive – “Y’all don’t know about my Biggie wars. Who you thought ‘Kick In The Door’ was for? But that’s my heart, y’all still trippin of this Jigga shit. Real niggas listen up and I’mma tell you how the whole thing start.”…

#38. Stay ft. The Large Professor – “We hate each other, but it’s love, what a thug mystery. Years ago they ate the heart of a slain enemy.We enemies, but your hatred could never enter me. Some seek fame cause they need validation. Some say hatin’ is confused admiration.”…

#37. 2nd Childhood – “Sittin on, different benches like it’s musical chairs. All his peoples moved on in life, he’s on the corners at night, with young dudes it’s them he wanna be like. It’s sad but it’s fun to him right? He never grew up. 31 and can’t give his youth up, he’s in his second childhood.”…

#36. The Firm – Phone Tap – “In the cut, drop-Z okay, the top’s up. Left the mall bought Little Amal the toy truck. Your boy’s what, three years old now, correct? He and my daughter age neck and neck, they futures set.”…

#35. Street Dreams (Remix) ft. R. Kelly – “Give the crew pounds everytime we cover new grounds. Still surviving but there’s a few down, back in the essence. I’m asking questions on the phone, with jail adolescents. Quiet confession, the system’s applying the pressure. My mind is guessing, is living and dying a lesson?”…

#34. Doo Rags – “Political thugs in shark suits persuade us to pull triggers in army boots, yellin “Join the armed forces!”. We lost the Vietnam War, intoxicated poisons. Needles in arms of veterans instead of bigger fortunes.”…

#33. Nasty – “I never see the whips niggas be claimin’ they drivin’. I guess entertainment means blatantly lyin’. Fake it ’til you make it, I’ve driven those toys. Been in the wars, in the streets, cops kickin’ in doors.”…

#32. Purple – “The hood love you but behind your back they pray for the day. A bullet hit your heart and ambulances take you away. That ain’t love it’s hate, think of all the mothers at wakes. Whose sons you killed, and you ain’t got a cut on your face?”…

#31.  I Can – “If the truth is told, the youth can grow. Then learn to survive until they gain control. Nobody says you have to be gangstas, hoes. Read more learn more, change the globe.”…

#30. Thugz Mansion (N.Y.) – “A place where death doesn’t reside, jus’ thugz who collide. Not to start beef but to spark trees, no cops rollin by. No policemen, no homicide, No chalk on the streets. No reason for no body’s momma to cry.”…

#29. Just a Moment ft. Quan – “Yeah, and can we have another moment of silence? For brothers who died from black-on-black violence. From here to the Dark Continent were rebels sell diamonds. To clients all over the world, got little Black girls dyin’.”…

#28. Memory Lane (Sittin’ In Da Park) – “Jungle survivor, fuck who’s the liver. My man put the battery in my back, a difference from Energizer. Sentence begins indented with formality. My duration’s infinite, moneywise or physiology. Poetry, that’s a part of me, retardedly bop. I drop the ancient manifested hip-hop, straight off the block.”…

#27. N.Y. State of Mind, Pt. II – “Broken glass in the hallway, bloodstained floors. Neighbors, look at every bag you bring through your doors. Lock the top lock, momma shoulda cuffed me to the radiator. Why not? It might’ve saved later from my block.”…

#26. Thief’s Theme – “Yo I’m hot like 95 Fahrenheit. On a summer night, tight spot where bodies rot. Rats drink from water drops, in the streets niggaz. Little kids scared cops, wit red dots. Philosophical gangsta, where violent priors. Goin back like black and white TV’s wit pliers. Leanin on broke down cars, wit flat tires. Flash iron, or anybody tryin on the blocks I’m supplyin on.”…
